Here at Gilt Home, we’re proponents of the investment piece: buy one quality furniture item and you ultimately won’t regret it; plus, amortized over time, that one great couch will wind up being a smarter buy than if you get a cheapie every five years — it’ll also be lighter on the planet). (It’s sort of like buying a great black dress or navy blazer; you spend a little more up front but you’ll get tons of wear out of it.) To that end, we present ddc — one of the country’s leading sources of contemporary furnishings. These furniture and lighting pieces and decorative accents range from subtly modern (check out the timeless McQueen side table) to completely cutting-edge (a shaggy Nepal rocking chair).
